I'm looking at getting back to C++ . Its been awhile since I last did it, so I am planning on going from the very beginning and looking for a site to learn it from. I've found a few but wish for the best one to stick to. Thanks in advance O:)

Personally, i feel there are no substitutes for books. A good book can never be replaced by any tutorials online. Well this is my opinion.

Re: Best place to learn C++? 80 80

Well books are an unrealistic possibility for me; but if that changes, what do you recommend?

Re: Best place to learn C++? 80 80

Why is it an unrealistic possiblity?

Re: Best place to learn C++? 80 80

I'm not allowed to go and by a book. AS much as I would love too, I can't (and yes, I have tried several times). So I was going to use resources online to and learn as I'm doing other things on the computer.

Do you know any good book for programming in c++?

Re: Best place to learn C++? 80 80

@Smalls518
Check the very first thread in the C++ forum, there is a thread on C++ Books.

@Azmah
Well, whenever i need help online,(i.e for some quick reference) i usually go for THIS. But i don't know if there are better ones.

Also, there are some lectures on YouTube. Maybe that could help you?

Re: Best place to learn C++? 80 80

Thank you very much for that link :D What are the possibilities with C++ ?

Re: Best place to learn C++? 80 80

I used learncpp.com, it is an excellent starting point. By the end of the tutorials you should know all of the advanced syntax of standard c++.

Re: Best place to learn C++? 80 80

Why is it prohibited to buy a C++ book where you live?
In any case, there is a fairly good book available online for free (Thinking in C++):

Re: Best place to learn C++? 80 80

I wasn't saying its prohibited. Its just I can't. They aren't easy to find, when I have looked for them in book stores.

Re: Best place to learn C++? 80 80

Thanks for helping me so far everyone :D

Re: Best place to learn C++? 80 80

If you can't go buy a book, sites like www.cplusplus.com and www.cprogramming.com are good places to start. Other things you can do are looking at YouTube tutorial videos. They're not always great, but you can get good information from them. Some good YouTube C++ tutorials are http://www.youtube.com/user/thenewboston and http://www.youtube.com/user/xoaxdotnet.

Re: Best place to learn C++? 80 80

Which of these links actually work?

Re: Best place to learn C++? 80 80

you don't have to buy a book, search on google the book name followed by PDF and you'll find pdf file(witch you don't have to download if you don't want) where you can learn from
ex:
"thinking in c++ pdf" - >http://www.lib.ru.ac.th/download/e-books/TIC2Vone.pdf

essential c++
Suit for beginner

Re: Best place to learn C++? 80 80

Besides the above recommended, I stumbled over this website :

http://www.java2s.com/Tutorial/Cpp/CatalogCpp.htm

I am learning from these and they're quite useful, though no explanation only in code comments.

Re: Best place to learn C++? 80 80

WOW WOW WOW thanks for the links everyone ;D

Re: Best place to learn C++? 80 80

You could check out www.learncpp.com in addition to the books. It has some info that some books miss out on. And as for books, I think that the Game Institute's books (C++ books for game programmes) is quite good. They have real good exercises at the end of their chapters. The only downside is that at they go into windows programming at the end of their 2nd book, so it might not be your thing if you're not into windows programming

Re: Best place to learn C++? 80 80

Thanks aswell, devjeetroy. I am also keen on other platforms and developing my own OS

Re: Best place to learn C++? 80 80

Thanks harbing, I do enjoy physics!

Re: Best place to learn C++? 80 80

Follow any easiest book.Read one topic and practice a lot as much as you can.
